Mark Husey [hju-zi] has devoted his life’s work to sharing and creating sacred music. As Parish Organist of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, San Pedro, a 3500-family parish in Los Angeles, he assists Music Director Donna Morris-Barnes as primary accompanist to a thriving multigenerational choral ministry. Formerly Principal Organist at Church of the Blessed Sacrament, Hollywood, he performed as organist with the Idyllwild Festival Orchestra and Chorus at Walt Disney Concert Hall, and as visiting organist in residence at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles.
A graduate of Westminster Choir College as an award-winning organ student of Eugene Roan, he served as accompanist to Joseph Flummerfelt and The Westminster Choir in their last combined Spoleto Festival appearances in the United States and Italy. In addition to solo and ensemble performances in the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, the Czech Republic, and China, he was the first American-born organist and choral clinician to perform and lead workshops in Southwest Russia.
Husey's passionate advocacy of the Church’s historic patronage of the musical arts have produced an impressive network of choral scholar alumni who themselves have garnered international distinction in early music, opera, composition, and academia.
Husey’s ten-year tenure at the Basilica of Saint Peter is documented with over 600 videos on two YouTube channels with over 4.5 million views. He previously served on the faculty rosters of the University of Miami and Florida International University, and has performed with Florida Grand Opera, the Opera Camerata of Washington, Musikanten, New Trinity Baroque, the Miami Bach Society, Red Priest, the University of South Carolina School of Music, Colla Voce, Symphony Orchestra Augusta, the National Chamber Orchestra, and the GRAMMY-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus.
